As a Sevierville, Tennessee native, moving to Nashville was an exciting adventure. I am a Biology major aspiring to pursue Physician's Assistant school. After volunteering at many hospitals and clinics, I have found a love for Pediatric Dermatology. I am currently involved on campus as a tour guide and ambassador, and I love spending the rest of my free time investing into this wonderful chapter. In my free time, you can catch me dancing, online shopping with my budget, preparing for Miss Tennessee in June, and spending time with friends, family, and my puppy Maggie Mae. This chapter is my heart, and I am excited to see our ladies as a whole grow together in 2017.
Vice President of Chapter Development
Mabry Culp, our joyful ball of energy from Dallas, Texas, is currently serving as the Vice President of Chapter Development. A double major in Communication Studies and Journalism, she is always on the go and can be found obsessing over her color coordinated google calendar, Ernest Hemingway, and Netflix. She is a self proclaimed hot chocolate and hummus enthusiast, as well as an amateur graphologist (someone who studies handwriting). With aspirations to be a corporate trainer, Mabry loves public speaking and working with others to better their communication skills. She is deeply looking forward to serving the chapter with her ebullient energy and servant heart.
Vice President of Committees
My name is Cassidy Best, and I am a sophomore Songwriting major here at Belmont University. I'm from Murfreesboro, Tennessee, so I went just 45 minutes down the road to college in Nashville! I have the incredible privilege of being Phi Mu Theta's Vice President of Committees this year and I am so honored to serve. I came to Belmont in career aspirations becoming a singer / songwriter, which is of course still my biggest dream, but the longer I am surrounded by such talented people in all facets of the music business, the more I know that as long as I have a career in the music industry, I will be happy!
Hi! My name is Macie Brown and I am a sophomore Accounting and Music Business double major. I am originally from Bowling Green, Kentucky and chose to come to Belmont because of it's location, business school, and the great greek life here! My end goal is to work in the financial/business side of the country music industry. I'm so thankful for my position as Treasurer because it will ultimately prepare me for my career, and for the fact that I get to serve my sisters in Phi Mu!
Born and raised in Tennessee, I spent most of my life growing up in Brentwood, just south of downtown Nashville. I’m currently studying Nursing with hopes to move to Colorado (or really anywhere cool) and work as an ER nurse. Someday I hope to do travel nursing and then get a Nurse Practitioner degree and license. I would 9 times out of 10 rather be outside and LOVE meeting new people, making new friends, and going on adventures.

Now a Texas resident, I am a native born East Tennessee girl at heart and have found my way back home in Nashville at Belmont. I am a junior Music Business major with a Legal Studies emphasis. I aspire to attend law school after graduation. In addition to Phi Mu, I am involved with Relay for Life, Service Corp, and intern at a law firm in Downtown Nashville. I love country music, running, shopping, trying new restaurants, and exploring Nashville with my friends in my free time. I have such high hopes for 2017 and will be spending my year, cherishing memories with sisters, studying for the LSAT’s and preparing for my senior year!! It is such an honor to serve this wonderful chapter and I am humbled to serve on 2017 Phi Mu Theta Executive Committee.
Hi! I'm Jessica Swan from Eugene, Oregon. I am a junior Mass Communication major and Public Relations minor. I am looking forward to pursuing a career in fashion upon graduation. In my free time I love exploring new cities, wakeboarding on the lake with my friends, and watching football with my family. In high school I led a team who organized a pageant benefitting Children's Miracle Network, and I am thrilled to be making a difference in the same wonderful cause throughout my time in Phi Mu.
Sisterhood Development Chair
My name is Rachel Ruppert, and I am a junior Nursing Major from St. Louis, MO. I was initiated into Phi Mu in the fall of 2014, and I have been in love with this organization since the day I pledged! This is my second year serving on Phi Mu’s executive board and I’m beyond thankful to have another opportunity to serve these beautiful sisters of mine. When I’m not attending Phi Mu events, I am involved in Nurse’s Christian Fellowship, Bruin Recruiters, TT leadership, and Ethos House Church. I love being so involved, especially because there are other Phi Mu sisters in each of these organizations with me! These women have my heart and continually make my college experience more incredible than I could have dreamed.
I was born and raised in Hendersonville, TN and plan to stay in Nashville. I am majoring in Public Relations with a minor in Political Science, and I'm hoping to work for political campaigns or non-profit organizations. I absolutely love doing pottery and sculpting. Anything artsy, I'm all about it. I also love spending time with my friends, especially my sisters! My favorite colors are gold and carnation pink, of course.
